Israeli media continues to cover conference visa difficulties

Last week, two more newspaper articles related to the At the Crossroads Conference were published in Israel. Pray that the LORD would use this coverage for good, that Israelis' eyes would be opened to the extraordinary notion that there are Christians who pray for Israel in her hostile neighbors. Pray that Israelis would be touched by the reality of reconciliation through Yeshua Messiah.
